Parents Info on Club Penguin
Before we get into what this game allows parents to do I want to remind you that it is up to you to do extra research on the game. maybe even try it out before allowing your children to play. Gaming is a fun thing to for children but playing for long hours is not always good.
There are benefits to gaming like enhanced reading skills, eye hand coordination, problem solving skills but at the same time they are not being active which is important to good health. So limiting the game time for young children is important.
Parents Note: Club Penguin has 2 versions of safe chat. The first one called Ultimate Safe Chat has predetermined statements that a player can use as well as emotes, actions and other things. This also limits what they can also read or see from other players.
The 2nd version is Standard Safe Chat This is basically a bad word filter hyped up. It try's to keep unappropriated language and phrases from being seen as well as Identifiable Information, while allowing the players to communicate by typing in what they want to say.
Standard Safe Chat is not perfect so things do get through, they do have game monitors which are hired staff that try to keep an eye on what is being said and are there to help.
Club Penguin also has 2 ways to play. The first way is Free, that is right no fees its free to play. The thing is that your child will not be able to do as much as some other players like buy the clothing or get specialty items. but they can go just about anywhere and play any of the games.
Ok the 2nd way to play is Membership play. This gives you absolutely access to everything you can spend your coins and get those specialty items. There are 3 plans A monthly fee of $5.95, or pay for 6 months up front for $29.95 or for 1 year up front for $57.95. If you cancel the account all the stuff you purchases gets put away till you resubscribe.
If you are a bit worried about putting your information up on the net you can buy membership cards from actual stores.
Are you worried your child will be on the game way to much? Don't be You have a special page where you can set up time limits.
Set Play Hours - set times for your child to play between.
Limit the Daily Total - limit the amount of total time your child plays.
(Sorry kids but the parents gotta know this stuff).
You can see the days and how long they are playing for as well as if they have been banned or not.
As a parent you get to have your own personal password so you can manage your kids accounts you can even change their password if you think its necessary.
Club Penguin Ratings and last thoughts.
The ratings go from lowest to highest
Defeated - In My opinion this was Horrible, worse than getting a spanking as a kid
1xp - 4xp = sub par games
5xp - this is average
6xp - 8xp - better than average in my opinion
9xp - a near perfect but something is holding it back
Leveled - this is so close to perfect or is perfect in my opinion
- Easy to play - Many of the games are extremely easy to play there are a couple that does take time to learn but most are easy so to this gets a 9XP
- Easy to learn - This is usually were a game can lose a player and then you spend some time figuring it out. This game most of it is really easy but you do need to know how to read. So if you have a child that does not you may need to show them how to play. So for this I give an 6XP
- Helps the kid to learn something - This online game for kids has a couple educational games in it but is more of a virtual hang out game place for your kids to talk to friends.4 I truly think they could have had more in this to help learning.
- Age - I can see many children playing the Club Penguin games, 4-5 yrs of age with a parent near by 6yr+ should have no problems learning the games
- Fun - Many of the games on this are really easy and can get boring for older children becuase of this I'm giving this rating a 5XP
- Variety / Attention holding - Variety lots of games but several are the same type of game just looks a bit different 5XP
Club Penguin is more of a virtual world than a game but all the same its a safe place for kids to go and chat with friends.
